She’s done everything from own and operate a McDonald’s to ban shellfish at Buckingham Palace during her 65-year reign, but there’s one thing we’ve never really seen Queen Elizabeth II do: speak on camera.
Well, the wait is finally over.
Queen Lillibet is set to appear in a new documentary titled The Coronation, in which she’ll reminisce about her June 2, 1953, coronation at Westminster Abby for the first time ever on camera. The film will also offer a rare inside look at the crown jewels and will feature the queen’s reflections about her father, King George VI, who was coronated in 1937.
Of her trip down memory lane, QEII says in the film, “I’ve seen one coronation and been the recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable.” Accurate.
